SlamXStyle: Don’t Wear These 5 Bathing Suits Because You’ll Look Like A Knock-Off Version Of These Movie Characters
The Extra-Short Trunks // If you go with something like this -- something out of a Dolce & Gabbana fragrance commercial -- just know have to come correct with some muscle, because if you don't, you're going to look like the flabby Italian version of Daniel Craig.
The Boardshorts // If you want to go for the extra-long option, that's cool. Just know you're going to look like Matthew McConaughey from that terrible Kate Hudson movie 'Fool's Good'... a less-ripped, probably even more bro-y Matthew McConaughey.
The Thong // A thong on a man is never a good idea and will undoubtedly transform you into a Borat, especially if you include the shoulder straps.
The Banana Hammock // Pretty much no better than the straight up thong. Plus, if you throw some ammo belts on it, you can look like Sean Connery in 1974's 'Zardoz', arguably the weirdest movie ever made.
And this... just don't wear whatever this is. It's not from a movie, but it's so terrifying that it need to be include.
As you prepare for beach season, there are many tough decisions you’re going to have to face if you don’t want to scare off your fellow (female) beach go-ers: how much sunscreen should I leave on my nose? How long can I suck in my belly before I pass out? Do I have to do any manscaping (hopefully not)?
But the most important decision, the one that either sets you up for success or dooms you to failure, is what swimsuit you wear.
So, to help you with that choice, SlamXStyle, a weekly rundown of what’s good and what’s a nightmare to wear, gives you a set of 5 bathing suits that you need to avoid, mostly because they’ll make you look a knock-off version of movie characters. Click through the gallery above.
